Course Description

This course is made available through the eLearnAfrica and FutureLearn partnership.

Learn how to teach your subject in English


As universities work to become globally competitive courses taught in English are expanding.


Those working in Higher Education are often thrown into producing academic work in English – either as teachers or researchers – without training in English language or intercultural skills.


This course aims to remedy that, giving you a thorough introduction to English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI). You’ll learn about current EMI practice, and increase your confidence in using English, you’ll also work to grow your intercultural skills.


Join us and get prepared for the global classroom.


This short course has been created for non-native speakers of English, required to teach in HE through the medium of English. The ideas underpinning the course are based in the work of Professor Jennifer Jenkins and researchers at the Centre for Global Englishes.
